June 24 - Brave Conversations
5:00 - 6:00 MST | Online Event
Presenter: Alexandra Marshall
Workshop summary: In this presentation we will discuss pertinent ESL topics including how to create a more welcoming and inclusive environment for all EAL/ESL learners with a focus on 2SLGBTQ+ terms and identities. We will examine topics which are often overlooked in an ESL/EAL course, such as 2SLGBTQ+ rights and history and addressing why these concepts are often not incorporated in our classes, how to respectfully introduce them into our ESL/EAL curricula, and the importance of inclusive instruction.
